Just curious to see everyone's favourite trim level. Mine is full up. I find I get an extra 3 mph and it makes the back end squirrelly in the turns lol.

Assuming that favorite is different from most used.
My favorite is up - for the same reasons as you Cormacs.
Most used is level or a bit down because I ride in chop frequently.

i use them all!, ill trim down to get up in speed faster while leveling it out then up at max while at max speed.
If i have it all the way up it takes to long to get the ski down and into max speed.

In Norway its very choppy most days so ill have it one dot down, usually.

Would you guys recommend the VTS? I can snag it fairly cheap and install myself around $200 total. How crucial is this when you're close to more shallow water and trying to protect what you intake?

I highly recommend VTS. I wouldn't have bought my ski with IBR were it not necessary for VTS.
It changes how your ski respond to you and how it rides in different water conditions.
VTS won't make a difference for your minimum safe riding depth.

First of all, you need IBR
I would really recommend it, trim up and you will have tons of fun doing 180s and stuff with no effort. Trim it down and you will get much better hookup. It will do nothing about protecting the intake. It's the steering nozzle that moves up and down, its not the same system like an outboard where you trim can the propulsion system itself out of the water.

I highly recommend it. Gets you more speed and more sliding with it trimmed up. With the trim up in sport mode you can launch it out of the water, I have fun sometimes just skipping across the water.

Yep this answered my question precisely! Thanks. I think I might invest in it. I already have IBR so I got that going for me!
